School of Technology and Computing

The mission of the School of Technology and Computing @ City University of Seattle:

Conduct programs, courses, research and consulting in technology and technology related areas internationally, host a Center for Information Assurance Education and support the Technology Education needs of City University of Seattle.


What started over 40 years ago as an experiment in non-traditional education has solidified itself as a part of the Washington State’s higher education landscape.  Early on, technology was included as a part of CityU’s curriculum.  It continued to be an important part of the University until 2013, when it was recognized as a significant and growing segment in its own right and as a result, the School of Technology and Computing was created to serve the hundreds of students we now teach and offers programs that compliment almost any technology career minded individual.

For the sixth consecutive year, CityU has been ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the Best Online Bachelor’s Programs, as well as being ranked among the top 50 in Best Online Graduate Information Technology Programs.

It is an exciting time to be involved in the information technology industry. Businesses utilizing technology to compete in today’s marketplace seek leaders with information systems and computer science proficiencies. At CityU, our faculty and industry professionals create programs and degrees that are thought-provoking and push the boundaries of our field. Our faculty engage our students in an academic environment that encourages success, and each program offers the flexibility for working professionals to earn their B.S. or M.S. without interrupting their careers.

We must continue to research and educate, pursue new discoveries, and nurture the forward momentum of the digital age. Our vision at CityU is education access worldwide via a network of partners and programs onsite and/or online.

I would like to personally invite you to explore our website and see in what ways we practice our mission by striving to change lives for good by offering high-quality and relevant lifelong education to anyone with the desire to learn.
